Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show | Returning May 14 - 16, 2018 | Place Bonaventure | Montreal, QC
The Montreal Manufacturing Technology Show (MMTS), produced by SME, scheduled for May 16-18, 2016 at Place Bonaventure in Montreal, is Quebec’s premier event for the manufacturing sector. Every two years, more than 4,500 buyers and influencers from across the province come to see exhibits featuring over 400 companies from around the world and representing industries such as aerospace, commercial and industrial machinery, automotive and transportation, mining, energy, medical, and information communication technology sectors—among many others. Past attendees include decision-makers from Alcoa Innovation, Bell Helicopter, Bombardier Transport, Cascades, GE Canada, Hydro-Québec and Pratt & Whitney Canada.
This three-day event is a unique opportunity for Quebecers to discover the manufacturing sector’s latest high-tech innovations, network with decision-makers and peers, engage in demonstrations of more than 1.5 million pounds of live machinery, and purchase cutting-edge equipment and solutions.
MMTS features key advances and developments in machine tools, tooling, metalworking, and advanced manufacturing including additive manufacturing, automation and robotics, design and software solutions. MMTS attendees discover and explore everything from 3D printing to the latest large-scale metalworking equipment on the show floor.
MMTS features a keynote by Eric Tetrault, President of Candian Manufacturers & Exporters (MEQ), on “Skilled Workforce + Innovation = Export Development: MEQ’s Formula to Boost Quebec’s Economic Growth.” The event also provides attendees with access to complimentary education in the form of technology presentations. Best practices from industry leaders, success stories and proven strategies shared in these sessions enable future innovations and business development for attendees. Networking is a key aspect of attendees’ MMTS experience; there are two networking events in which they can participate: the MMTS Opening Reception as well as Job Shop Appreciation Night with special guest, 10-time Stanley Cup winner Yvan Cournoyer.
MMTS brings together a diverse group of Quebec’s small and medium enterprises from different sectors, in addition to well-known local and international organizations. With extended hours into the evening, the show’s second day is dedicated to Quebec’s job shops to make it easier for them to source solutions and network with colleagues and potential customers.
